Damian Lillard just picked up his fourth foul and he'll head to the bench with 9:20 left in the third. Steve Blake in.
4th on Lillard. Blake in at the 9:20 mark of the 3rd.
The player with the most distance covered on the court this year: Damian Lillard. Almost seven marathons. http://t.co/zW6YDrOJpc
Lillard came from 30 feet away with full speed. Plenty of momentum. He lets go of the rim & he falls. Use discretion. That's part of the job
CCC's Lillard made a great play to drive past the defense & give his team a 4-pt lead. Then ref gave Defiance 2 pts it didn't earn & ball.
Lillard may not have a lot of points in the fourth, but he's been masterful. True PG work tonight
Margin = +/- 5 points. Clock = under 5:00 min. It's Damian Lillard time
Lopez screen, rescreen, roll, catch, fake and finish. Well executed side pick and roll action by him and Lillard
Suns 66, Blazers 60 - End 3: Aldridge 15pts (7-20), Lopez 10pts, Lillard 8pts (3-11). Portland shooting 35.7% (25-70). 25% in 2nd and 3rd.
Lillard's change of pace is out of this world. McCollum needs some of that
Lillard long on a 3 and short on the next. He's 3-for-11 and 2-for-5 from deep.
Eric Bledsoe 6pts (3-9) and Damian Lillard 5pts (2-6) both pretty quiet in the first half.
Some body on the weak side has to crack back on Lopez when Len comes over to help on Lillard drive. Easy put back
Lillard threw the ball away on the inbound, then does the acting job of his life to draw that charge. Cmon, Billy Kennedy
Suns starters: Bledsoe, Tucker, Marc Morris, Mark Morris, Len. Blazers: Lillard, Afflalo, Batum, Aldridge and Lopez
Lillard had 13 of his 23 and Aldridge scored 9 of his 19 in 4th
Aldridge and Lillard scored the last 14 points for the Blazers.
And it was. Lillard had no place to go. Complete bailout
Three point play by Lillard gives Portland an 87-86 lead....Burke responds with a jumper...jazz up 1
Blazers All-Stars to the rescue. LMA with a huge put back and Lillard with an and-1 on the break. Blazers up 87-86 with 1:30 left
Lillard has 16 in the second half – 8 in Q3, 8 so far in Q4. Blazers down just 2, 79-76 with 5:21 to go.
Lillard picking things up. Blazers down 79-76 with 5:21 left.
Lillard has attacked the rim in the fourth, Blazers could've used that in the opening three quarters.
Lillard is not playing around right now....with anyone
Stotts going small. Aldridge in at 5 next to Dorell Wright, Crabbe, Afflalo and Lillard.
Lillard is angry.
My name is....DAMMEEE Damian Lillard after that dunk, probably
End of 3: Jazz 65, Blazers 55. Blazers with 8 3rd quarter TOs, 14 for the game. Aldridge and Lillard both w/ 10 but 6-22 combined FG.
Jazz are trapping so well right now, then intercepting the pass with the help man! Reading Lillard like a book.
50-47 Blazers after Lillard's steal and lob to Aldridge. 5:43 Q3.
Least dunkingest team strikes again. Aldridge softly lays in an alley-oop from Lillard on the break. Blazers up 50-47.
Blazers lead 42-39 after that Lillard 3.
Aldridge and Lillard are just 2 for 13. Guessing that'll change in the second half.
Freeland and McCollum first subs off the bench. They're in with Lillard, Afflalo and Aldridge.
I am legally obligated to remind you the Blazers are 7-0 when Allen Crabbe starts. They are 44-25 when Damian Lillard starts.
Stotts pulls Afflalo and Lillard. White flag up.
Lillard, McCollum, Afflalo, Gee and Crabbe in for the Blazers. The smallest of small-ball.
Warriors 93, Blazers 80 after 3. Lillard with 26. McCollum with 16. Curry with 27. 4 other Warriors in double figures.
Warriors hit 16 of 24 shots and score 36 points in 3Q, take 93-80 lead into final period. Curry 27 points, Lillard 26
Warriors still scored that possession but the way Lillard made it around that Bogut screen shows you how far he's come in that area.
